, that is a republican's pledge to america. they rolled it out. they went to a hardware store out in sterling, virginia, what do you make of it? >> i think it is less interesting as a governing agenda as it is as kind of a rorschach test. mainstream moderate republicans and conservatives seem to bell come that. we are enthusiastic about telephone. precisely because it's not particularly bold, not particularly dangerous or controversial it really overturns the obama agenda. but tea party, the hard-core of the tea party was very critical of the pledge. for the same reasons. because it wasn't bold enough. they don't want to just overturn the obama agenda. they want to overturn broad layers of the u.s. government. i think that that presents a problem for republicans if they win the house between those that really want to take down the whole building and those that want to govern an effective wage. it's going to be a serious conflict. >> so we are getting a look at what could happen down the road. >> i think it is more of a political document than sort of a vague blueprint for governing. i mean they finesse

, former governor wilder of virginia. same thing. >> and bill clinton said essentially you got to stop saying this stuff is working. you know, this is a president with a really long list of legislative accomplishments. he clearly wants to get out and tout this stuff. the stimulus is entirely unpopular and not working. so carville, you know, the white house loves when they get suggestions from former clinton people on what to do, right? but i mean, carville says -- and i think he's got a point here, you've got to emphasize the fight and notes in low look in the rearview mirror here -- and not necessarily look in the rearview mirror here. >> and the president says the plan is working, focus, focus, focus. what about the message? >> they've got a message and it's not a placid time. the gulf oil spill probably set them back two to three months. that combined with their self-inflicted damage by dragging out the health care thing. there's also a sense of sort of like political a.d.d. at 1600. they lurch from topic to topic. there is no coherent strand. the thing you hear more than anything e

[applause] as we say, on highway 40 where i it? up, who'd have thunk even republicans in congress have gotten back to fiscal discipline and conservative values. agos be honest, four years republicans in congress did not just lose their majority. they lost breakaway. lost their way. when i opposed the wall street bailout, i told my colleagues the american people would eventually go with the professionals if we kept acting like liberals. sadly, they did. the truth is our party in congress walk away from the principles that minted our national governing majority. if the american people walked away from that. house republicans, have they learned their lesson? people ask me that. after a year that saw every single house republican vote against the ph
. with the president's panes in virginia on monday in a suburban backyard for an hour and a half he took questions from the residents of this neighborhood. not once in those 90 minutes was the war with afghanistan, was iraq, was the military ever mentioned either by the president or any of about 20 people who asked him questions. how do each of you view this apparent lack of interest or weariness with what's happening there? >> i think for a lack of interest or weariness for all the people who didn't speak about it or think about it, i think there's millions more americans that really do understand what the american soldier is going through, and i'm not doing it right now. i'm still a soldier, but at the same time, i'm proud. i'm so proud to say i'm with the 173rd. i am stoked that i can say, i'm with the rock. battle hard. i'm proud right now of being on the attachment team, serving and they're out in doing it again. and if other people don't know, well, hopefully they'll listen to this and they'll remember that there's men and women out there every single day giving everything for their country. >> y
says is entirely correct. there are democrats running on these principles we saw in west virginia, ellen mollohan was defeated in the primary, alverio ran on tea party principle, smaller government and fiscal restraint. so we are starting to see that shift that's that is going to correct on the democratic side. jenna: does that mean the tea party is about backing republicans? >> no, and to go with matt's earlier point that we just haven't been able to find democrats at the national level, and i would also caution that there are democrats out there, running as false conservatives, because their first goal as a politician is to get reelected and that's what we have to be careful of i think at the state level an certainly in new york and in the new york metro, we have many democrats who align with our principles, but if they want to run, their party will not let them identify with the tea party. jenna: david, let me stay with you for a second, because there's a lot that's been said about the tea party and who makes it up. in fact, colleen from madison, alabama, wrote us and asked who
